I’m gonna get on point 1 / 2 straight away. Stay tuned.
Arsenal lightened the mood around the world by announcing we’ve signed Cohen Bramall from a non-league side for next to eff all. The lad looks very capable after 6mins of extensive Grimantubing, plies his trade on the left, so I expect he’ll be a right midfielder within the next few years.
What I do find interesting is the massive PR push behind him. Sure, I’d understand it if it were Xhaka, but it seems very aggressive for a player who has never played top flight football here? The guy doesn’t even have Rob Holding levels of experience and I’ve seen him on Sky, there’s a picture of him signing a deal with Wenger, we’ve had his family in the press and I’ve read 26 interviews with him or about him and I think I just added his autobiography to my kindle?
I’m all for creating celebrity, I’d just have thought the club might go a little easy on a young lad who has a lot to learn. I mean, maybe he doesn’t have a lot to learn and he’s the new Marcelo, but I do worry when we do this with young kids. I have harsh visions of Wenger telling us Yaya Toure could be a £50m player.
ALSO, while I’m on the subject of young English kids, what the hell has happened to Rob Holding? Guy looked like the new Paolo Maldini a few months ago, Arsenal fans uncontrollably messing themselves at their desks sharing tweets of smug Arsene because he’d landed a player better than John Stones, but where he at?
Now my point here isn’t that he might not be the next BIG TONY ADAMS LADS LADS LADS, my point is this… if he’s not going to play in the first team, and we’re out the league cup, should we not have him on loan at West Ham? The guy is very capable, way more capable than Calum Chambers who Arsenal fans whacked skippy like zoo macaques because he was the new John Terry. So finding a club and being very good shouldn’t be a problem.
Instead, we’re wasting a year of his development watching him on the bench. He has literally no chance of making the first team. By the time Kos picks up an injury, Per will probably be back… then when Per leaves this summer (has to be a chance right?), we’ll basically have a very raw Rob Holding.
Same for Bramall, a guy who looks so sweet, he’d get bullied by children TV presenters, is a raw talent. If he’s not going to be back up for Monreal, farm him right back out on loan to a Championship club if they’ll take him. It’s all about experience at that age. But, it’s very typical of Wenger not to think ahead about things like that.
Just as a side note, on the rags to riches front, it’s quite interesting that the papers are running with the, ‘he was made redundant from a car factory’, like that was it for him, life over. I also like that he’s pure Arsene Wenger defender…
‘I wanted to be a left winger and he said in front of my mum and dad “no I want you to be a left back”.
Good luck to you son, I hope the PR circus is worth it, because it’d be great to have proper home grown left back ripping it up at Arsenal for years to come!
Right, see you in the comments my darlings.
